Continuously prompted to install updates when fully updated

When opening Quickbooks Desktop (any version), the prompt to install the latest updates appears, even though you are already on the latest release. 

How to fix it
  1. From the Help menu, choose Update QuickBooks.
  2. Click the Options tab and make note of the Download Location.
  3. Close QuickBooks.
  4. Browse to the location noted in step 2, by default: C:\ProgramData\Intuit\QuickBooksXXXX\Components\ (where XXXX is your year version of QuickBooks).   
  5. Double-click the Components folder.  Right-click DownloadQBXX and rename it to DownloadQBXX.old (XX is 27 for QuickBooks 2017,   26 for QuickBooks 2016, 25 for QuickBooks 2015 and 24 for QuickBooks 2014).
  6. Open QuickBooks.
